With the implementation of the BC Energy Step Code, housing is going increasingly green. The Canadian Home Builders' - Central Okanagan recognizes these changes, and will place an increased emphasis on homes being built with energy efficiency in mind during judging. Applicants are encouraged to submit documentation supporting their efforts in energy efficiency at time of submission.
With the landscape of residential housing changing, this award has been introduced to recognize the importance of design and use of space while still providing a comfortable home to live in.
Whether it's your dream home, or just your dream kitchen, the key to any good project is trust.
Watch as we discuss with local residential builders 'What it Takes to Be a Home Builder'.
